Parents Protect Your Children… From Disney!editor
It’s good to see parents challenging Disney for daring to sexualise their offspring. It’s not easy to stand up to the wacky woke brigade, but is there an argument for criticising parents who rely too much on the technology that allows them to stick their child in front of a TV screen while they get on with (presumably) more important things?
Screen-based technology as baby-sitter is dangerous, if all too understandable, and not only because few parents would have the time to preview content or be aware of its potentially insidious nature.
I must say that even as a child I was never overly sold on Disney’s content post-Walt Disney (1966), apart from The Jungle Book (1967) and Robin Hood (1973) in which Walt’s influence could still be felt. The rest of it, including what came via television and a magazine my parents bought me, was too sugary and vacuous for my tastes, even then. I have never been to Disney World and have never desired to do so. Only a fool and a pagan fool could think that a tarted-up amusement park could be the happiest place on earth.
I know that quite a few Americans blog here and I would not deliberately offend them for the world, but it seems to me that, beyond Disney, America itself has been culturally very much a mixed blessing for the West. America saved Europe from itself not once, but twice (World Wars I and II), and for that we must be eternally grateful. But the Pax Americana brought with highly problematic social mores which have been utterly devastating, especially to us in the UK where we were more exposed because we share the English language. I am thinking here principally of the destruction of the traditional family through easy access to divorce, but also of the sexual revolution as such and all that came with it in terms the severing of the link between sexual intercourse and pregnancy, the transforming of infidelity into a quasi-virtue, abortion, etc. Highly significant here also is the rise of popular music, with its core message of sexual license and its related drug culture, to say nothing of its diabolical capacity to make inroads into young minds, leaving them depressed, unsatisfied and morally numb. All of this, of course, would be unthinkable without the extraordinary evangelizing power of that typically American art form which is the motion picture and its television derivatives. Hollywood, in the wider sense, has been a cesspool practically since its inception, its stench utterly overpowering in cultural terms, although more recently folks in the US have begun to wake up to this.
So there are a lot of vested interests out there from which to protect children, and not just of the financial variety. But beware. Things are such now that the chief moral danger to kids may now be the state (public) school system which, incidentally, does not like being challenged, for in the UK (differently from the US) kids are very much the government’s to do what they like with, and it has been thus over many decades. Parents should take great care to find out what is being said in the classroom and to put into effect remedial measures, teaching their kids as they get older about pagan versus Christian beliefs, and challenging them.
It is sad that it has come to this, but the guard was let down long ago when we allowed politics and politicians to take over every aspect of our lives. Will we never learn?
I noticed that at the time of the Named Person Scheme, that there were parents who saw nothing wrong with the State having a big role in their child’s life. I know there was a backlash, thank God, but there were still parents who said they supported the NPS and thought the State should have such a big part in their child’s upbringing. I was astounded.
Indeed. In Scotland we are, unfortunately, addicted to the state.
I put this comment on another thread recently:-
Another great example of the ‘go woke, get broke’ syndrome. It needs to be pushed home to these organisations that pushing the LGBT and other woke agendas is making people turn against them. Disney has been pushing the LGBT agenda for a long time, but more heavily recently, and it has lost nearly $50 billion dollars recently:
So this proves that if parents vote with their feet and stop using Disney and suchlike organisations, they can be brought to heel – or if they fail to take heed, made to go broke.
I agree that woke agendas is making people turn against them. What they will end up with is a backlash.
Thanks for posting Jesse Watters – he’s always entertaining and informative. I’m not sure he’s right about that “revolt” though – it seems to be taking its time, at least over here in the UK.
That is the secret, I think – don’t buy their products. I didn’t know that Disney had lost nearly $50 billion dollars recently – that’s excellent. It’s the only language these people understand – money.
Protesting and leaving the product “on the shelf” will make the shareholders sit up and take notice.
The Mcaines oven chip people had a big indoctrination campaign with the Fr Jimmy Martin programme, but as people stopped buying their produicts they have now switched to family friendly advertising. Not that I buy oven chips I prefer the real tattie chipped up and in my deep fryer, delicious!.
LOL! I prefer real chips as well, but that’s interesting about Mcaines oven chips having to switch to more family friendly advertising. Money, as I said above, is the only language these business people understand.
Oh my goodness. Blog is very slow, just when we’re due to pay up for another year. If it’s quality not quantity, then we’re doing well – two very thoughtful comments from Leitourgos and WF.
I’m heading out now, folks, so will check in later to see if it’s picked up.
That Ex Policeman sums up the homosexuals to a Tee . If what was going and is been shown on Disney had been shown a few years ago . The people showing it would have been thrown in Prison.
Let’s not fool ourselves here the biggest threat not just to our Children but to Mankind is Homosexuality and Transgenderism, the homosexuals seem to be at the Top Everywhere. And we know the Homosexuals are at the Very Top in Our Catholic Church and are at The Top and running things on our so called Main Stream Media. The homosexual Teachers who went on Strike in The J. F. School are testimony to what they want taught to Our Children. Not theirs as probably they don’t have Children.
I believe and am open to criticism is that the Ukraine Russia War is also a part of Perversion. Ukraine is the Most Perverted and Corrupt Country in Europe and that takes some doing. Especially when you have Ireland and Malta scrambling now to be the worst. But av said it before and I say it again any LGBTQ2XYZOP who come Near my Grandchildren get their Operations FREE.
In January of 1963, an excerpt from the book The Naked Communist was read into the Congressional Record by a US Representative (from Florida! Now occupied by Disney!). She titled this excerpt “The Communist Agenda In America – 45 Goals.” Here are a few of them related to the sexualization (perverted and otherwise) of children:
17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
18. Gain control of all student newspapers.
21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.
25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”
40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

That sounds like Bella Dodd, the Communist convert (or revert – she had been baptised a Catholic but lapsed).
If those goals are not from her, she had very similar ones, although it’s a while since I read her book, School of Darkness. https://justice4poland.com/2020/02/20/bella-dodd-the-new-world-order-is-communism/
Too bad that the ‘Right’ — and not just in the US, but almost everywhere — couldn’t understand what was going on and basically just rolled over, leaving the Left to occupy schools, universities and the culture generally.
I read through that Burning Platform article and had two thoughts:
1) the LGBTQ+ lobby shows determination and imagination in their drive to groom children
2) Ron de Santis seems strong right now, as Governor of Florida but would he cave to pressure if elected President?
I am not kidding.
